Customer Reviews

Nature's Variety Instinct Grain-Free Venison Formula Canned Cat Food is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Well-Liked by cats Out of 3 cats, only 1 readily eats this food. I will continue buying it for him, since he has IBS and this is one of the rare canned meats that causes no diarrhea. One of the other cats will eat it only if really hungry and the 3rd won't touch it. It's very solid and dry so I add warm water to it. It seems very fatty. I also think Nature's Variety charges too much for this venison.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The canned venison flavor is too firm. My senior cat needs a limited ingredient diet due to a health condition. I tried giving her the canned venison formula of Nature's Variety Instinct but it is not a true pate...too hard/firm. Then I ordered the duck formula (small cans are in smooth pate form) and she loves it. She really looks forward to Nature's Variety Instinct Grain free Duck formula canned cat food. I like that it does not contain carrageenan either...good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product I have tried the rabbit, beef, venison, chicken, salmon, and duck. I recommend the smellier of the wet food: the salmon, chicken, and duck. Although all of the products are excellent, my cat seems to prefer the ones that have a stronger smell. The beef, rabbit, and venison have very little smell at all—something I think attests to the cleanness and quality of the meat—but my cat does not seem to enjoy it as much. As far as the beef, rabbit, and venison are concerned, the vet recommended warming the food in the microwave for 30 seconds to give the food a stronger smell. I do not like microwaves, so leaving the food out at room temperature seems to work for the beef, rabbit, and venison, although, once again, it is not a favorite. It is, however, worth a try like all Nature's Variety wet food products. It is the very best wet food I have encountered in my years as a pet owner, i.e. 10+ years. It is worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality canned food My cats really enjoy the venison flavor Nature's variety canned cat food. It is pretty smelly but I think that is one of the reasons why they like it! I usually give them canned food once a day in order to mix medicines into and this one works really well for that

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent but be careful of the Peas if there are allergies I was concerned about the "dryness" of this food after reading the reviews but they must have improved the formula because this food was moist and wet in my experience. My cats loved the Venison Flavor. One kitty has an allergy however and it seemed that every-time she ate NV brand, she would begin to scratch. After speaking with a Chewy Rep, they mentioned this could be the PEAS they use. Indeed the brand she does very well with (I and Love and You Rabbit) does NOT have Peas so this makes perfect sense. All of the NV foods are on an approved list of Cat Foods according to Dr. Jean Hofve's Book "What Cats Should Eat" so if you are looking for a quality food, I feel this is a good one and I think your cat will love the Venison Flavor. If your pet has food allergies however, you may want to be mindful of the peas used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality and great for cats with IBD or allergies My sweet girl cat Marcela loves all of the Nature's Variety flavors that I have given her. She is 10 years old, very finicky and I have to be very careful with what I feed her. She was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease about a year and a half ago and the best plan I've found for her is a high protein and grain free diet. Since I’ve been feeding her Nature’s Variety canned cat foods I have been able to get the problem under control. No more vomiting or diarrhea. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to get their cat back on a healthy track or simply maintain good health.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Typically like Instinct but... My cats and I both typically like Instinct but I'm just not sure about this one - and I don't know if it's this particular formula or if NV is making changes, anyway - I have only used 2 cans so far - but I immediately notice a big lack of consistency. The first can I opened was definitely pate (but had this weird white stuff congealed at the top - I'm assuming fat, but was under impression venison is a lean meat?) and when spooning out the texture was VERY grainy - it literally felt like there was sand mixed in the with food. Can #2 was REALLY soupy/saucy more like a "stew" cat food and had TONS of peas and HUGE pieces of carrot. I will be very disappointed if NV is making big changes to their foods ....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend anything from this company! We love Nature's Variety here! We've had to adjust our choice of products from their offerings to what our one cat with allergies and digestive issues can eat without problems. We stick with their L.I.D. Instinct kibble, but she can handle the 95% regular Instinct canned foods. She seems to do better with the flavors that don't contain any eggs (venison, duck, rabbit). I recommend this wholeheartedly!!
